Pip’s music has been compared to the songs of Shirley Horn, Donovan, Burt Bacharach, Michael Franks, Jimmy Webb, Randy Newman, Irene Kral, Erik Satie... But of course at this point he has his own voice.
Pip is officially 'old-age' according to the government. He writes about experiences living abroad in eight different countries and cultures of "other". Some of his lyrics are in languages that are not English. Lyrics address freedom of speech, tolerance, equal rights, and equal opportunity, as well as the usual topics of love, life, and compassion. Pip's music is a blend of music of more than one culture and genre: that is his background.
Although he does not play arena rock, Pip grew up playing hockey and is a fan of the Dundas Real McCoys hockey team.
